Vision Therapy FAQ


Vision TherapyMany vision problems do not require surgery for correction. In these situations, vision therapy is typically an option. Vision therapy is a form of physical therapy used on the eyes and brain. It is designed to resolve vision problems that can contribute to learning disabilities. This therapy can also be used an effective treatment for problems like lazy eye, crossed eyes, or double vision.


Common Questions about Vision Therapy

There is more to vision therapy than simply strengthening the eyes. It also enhances the neurological connections between the eyes and the brain. Eyes are the windows of the brain. It directly influences sight based on how it interprets images received. A healthy connection between the eyes and the brain is essential for good eyesight.

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about the nature of vision therapy:

How does vision therapy work?

It uses progressive vision exercises performed under the supervision of your eye care provider. Each set of exercises is tailored to meet the individual visual needs of a patient. These exercises are done 1-2 times per week in sessions lasting 30 minutes to a full hour. The exercises are designed to continue until visual processing problems show improvement.

What is the purpose of the vision exercises?

Vision exercises are designed to help patients improve basic visual skills that connect the eyes with the brain. These exercises can improve visual efficiency by changing how a patient interprets images. This helps them see and understand images correctly.

Do these exercises simply strengthen eye muscles?

Nothing about vision therapy is centered on strengthening eye muscles. These muscles can be strengthened through orthoptics if they need strengthening. This therapy is all about improving vision problems that may interfere with learning by strengthening the neurological pathways between the eyes and the brain.

What is the first step in a vision therapy program?

A comprehensive vision exam is necessary before starting therapy. Following the exam, your eye care provider can determine whether or not this type of therapy is the recommended treatment for your vision problems.

Is there scientific evidence that it really works?

It does work. Studies on vision therapy show it is effective in improving the lives of patients. Data shows that this therapy can improve visual function enough to keep it from interfering with a patient's ability to absorb information and learn. In its own sphere, this therapy is as effective as physical therapy or occupational therapy..

Who typically needs vision therapy?

It can be a useful tool for helping children and adults alike. Children with learning or reading problems can benefit from the vision boost these exercises provide. Eyeglasses are not the solution when the problem is visual processing. These problems can't be detected without tests done by an eye doctor. Adults can see vision improvement through this therapy as well. It can help curb eye-strain related vision processing problems brought on by working with computers all day.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Best experience ever! Don't let the small shop fool you... They have an array of designer brands as well as traditional styles to select from. Mustafa is professional,patient and accommodating. I absolutely love my new glasses. I could not be happier.

  • I first heard about EZ Optical from my best friend she gets all her designer glasses from Mustafa. When I got to his store he took the time to get to know me and showed me several frames that brought out my facial features and made me look trendy. I trust his judgement. He also took the time to show me how to remove my glasses so that they dont get loose. He even replaced my nosepads so I would be more comfortable in my new frames.

  • Mustafa assisted me patiently as I tried on more than ten pairs of glasses. He understood my taste and was able to filter out what I would like and what I wouldn't. I didn't buy the same day but he didn't pressure me into purchasing anything and was not annoyed that I may have possibly wasted his time. I did come back because I really appreciated the service and ended up purchasing a pair that I get SO many compliments on! He also educated me on how my insurance would handle my out of network cl

  • Been getting my eyewear at EZ Optical for many years now and I keep coming back for great, fast and affordable service...

  • EZ Optical has the most friendliest staff, they are great with prescriptions and hardly ever have a long wait. Their collections on frames are great; I always get compliments on every frame/glasses I purchase from here. Totally recommend this place!

  • EZ Optical is one of the best places to come to and they offer you the best customer service. We've been coming here for so many years and we can't find ourselves going anywhere else. Mustafa Bhai and his dad are so funny and so cool to be around. They are always nice and when we come to EZ Optical, we feel so comfortable and as if we are home. I don't see why anyone wouldn't want to come here. They are seriously the best.
